Youtube video copyright
As much as there are tools that help in downloading videos from Youtube, including the platform itself providing this function in paid plans… it is always necessary to be aware of Copyright laws!
Just because a video is on the Internet doesn't mean it can be replicated as you please, especially for financial purposes. Publishing a third party's video without prior authorization is considered a crime.
From the moment a person creates something totally new, and publishes it on Youtube, the person who created it automatically has the copyright to that particular content.
There are cases, however, that the use of these videos is “acceptable” under the law. For example, in the United States it is acceptable to use a person's work, with their prior permission, for research, study, and educational purposes, as long as it is not for financial purposes.
In order not to have any problems related to copyright when using someone else's content on Youtube, read the page very carefully YouTube Copyright and Acceptable Use Policies, which contains all Youtube guidelines about it.
